The program committee of the Financial Research Association seeks new finance papers of general interest to the profession for the 16th annual meeting of the Association. We are specifically looking for papers that have not been submitted to a journal and have been neither presented nor scheduled to be presented at the Western Finance Association meeting or the ASSA meeting. The selection process is very competitive: last year’s acceptance rate was less than 5%.
All papers will be presented by a discussant, after which the authors will have an opportunity to respond. The meeting provides an excellent forum for authors to obtain detailed feedback from an accomplished and active group of finance scholars.
DUAL SUBMISSION OPTION: Papers submitted to the FRA can opt to participate in the Dual Submission Program with The Review of Asset Pricing Studies and The Review of Corporate Finance Studies at no charge. See the SFS website for complete details concerning the Dual Submission Program.
BEST PAPER AWARD: The Financial Research Association will present the BlackRock Best Paper Award, as selected by the conference attendees, regardless of research area. Authors of the winning paper will share a prize of $5,000. We will present a Best Discussant Award, which will be accompanied by a prize of $5,000.
MICHAEL J. BARCLAY AWARD: The Association will present the Michael J. Barclay Award to the young scholar who submits the best solo-authored paper. Young scholars include current PhD students and assistant professors who have held their PhD for less than three years.
There is no limit to the number of papers that one author may submit.
PH.D. STUDENT TRAVEL GRANTS: The Association will provide up to three travel grants of $1,000 each for attending Ph.D. students. Submissions will be eligible if all authors are Ph.D. students.
